Baby Update 10.23.10

Doctor went well on Friday.  Karleigh is a little on the small side according to her sonograms.  This could be due to genetics (I was 6 lbs 7 oz at birth) or it could be due to the hypertension.  Dr W believes it will be best for her to go ahead and arrive since my blood pressure keeps spiking.  He has scheduled me to be induced next week.  I'm panicking.  As excited as I am to finally meet Karleigh...I'm scared.  I do not want anything to happen to her.  I would cherish your prayers as Kevin and I get ready to meet our little girl. 

I've seen this little blurb posted on others blogs before but I didn't remember it until just now!  I wish I would've done this the whole pregnancy but at least I squeezed it in at the last minute. 

Pregnancy Highlights:
How Far Along: 37 Weeks & 4 days
Size of baby: Over 19 inches (A stalk of swiss chard?)
Total Weight Gain/Loss: Gained 29 lbs
Maternity Clothes: A whole closet full of them and I will probably be wearing them long into 2011.
Gender: A Girl!  After 10 sonograms...please be correct!
Movement: She thumps and rolls constantly.  I've noticed her movement slows down when my BP gets really high and that upsets me.
Sleep: in 1 to 1 1/2 hour increments.  It is starting to show on my face...apparently I "look tired!" ha!
What I miss: Having feeling in my hands & fingers and being able to grip things.
Cravings: Breakfast foods, grapes, peaches, ice cream
Symptons: Metallic taste and all day sickness in the beginning.  Swelling, carpal tunnel from swelling, heartburn. 
Best Moment this week: Getting to spend some down time with my family! 

One last thing...Happy Birthday to my beautiful Mother Patti!  The most beautiful grandmother to be around!  I love you Mom!
